Smith is better then most of our defenseman. Lets not act like this thread would be made if he didnt make a dumb mistake last night. Yes he can make silly plays, but everyone of our defenseman does the same s***. DeKesyer hasnt been that great this year but since hes everyones boy toy (probably because hes from Michigan), you dont hear much about him. Kronwall turns it over, same with Ericsson. Quincy is probably most reliable. But i guess since everyone had high hopes for Smith he gets bashed on the most.
I also like when people talk about "hockey smarts" like they actually played the game at a high level and understands what it takes. I guess its really easy.
